INTP Personality Type: Thinker & Seeker
We have a pure kind of excitement and trust in our INTP skills of observation and analysis. It's like we realize we have this amazingly versatile tool. We love it, because man, does it work! I call this stage of young adulthood the "Fix-It" Stage. It is marked by an aggressive, single-minded, over-confident use of The Tool. And when The Tool doesn't work, we aren't dissuaded. And again. We keep using the same approach until we're so frustrated we want to scream. Not long after embarking out into the world, we usually find our first friction. Our style of intelligence may or may not translate into school performance. We may find that other people are not so interested in the kind of knowledge we seek. We may feel the first stab of a sharper isolation. Not the mysterious, hard-to-pin down feelings of isolation in childhood. Now, we have a growing pile of real world negative experiences at our disposal. More people, more venues, and more changes don't seem to solve the odd disconnect we feel with people. We experience our first failed attempts to adapt or adapt others to us. Yet, deep down, the powers and process we are using still feel great. Under the stings and frustrations and hurt feelings, we feel an enduring, fundamental sense of empowerment. That is the for the most part positive side of the Fix-It Stage. Until it becomes the worst part. That's what I'll explain. And what to do about it. As we leave childhood, our newly minted INTP skills feel pretty good. We are armed with a strong, inner confidence even if the confidence doesn't quite make it to the surface. We realize we have potent powers of analysis. We realize that if we focus our minds and energies, we can truly decode and understand the outside world. As we drink in information and produce ever-growing theories, we gain knowledge. And without even thinking about whether we trust this process of observation and analysis, we trust it. It is us. It is what we do. Early childhood development for an INTP is a very gradual and organic process when we learn about our positives and our negatives through trial and error without any objective guidance or assistance unless we are around another INTP mentor who is wise and self-aware. Once we have a grasp on the breadth and reach of our skills, we start improving and focusing them. Soon, we realize that others don't share these skills. In elementary school, most likely. There is a time when we realize that we are doing something cognitively that others don't do.

People of the following types are more likely than most to share the INTP's values, interests, and general approach to life. They won't necessarily agree on everything, and there's no guarantee they'll always get along, but they're more likely to feel an easy rapport and have plenty of things in common. People of the following types are likely to strike the INTP as similar in character, but with some key differences which may make them seem especially intriguing. The INTP may find people of these types particularly interesting and attractive to get to know. Relationships between INTPs and these types should have a good balance of commonalities and opportunities to challenge one another. INTPs may not feel an immediate connection with people of the following types, but on getting to know each other, they'll likely find they have some important things in common, as well as some things to teach one other. Although people of these types may not attract the INTP initially, their relationships present a lot of potential to complement and learn from one other. People of the following types present the most potential for personality clash and conflict with the INTP, but also the best opportunities for growth. Because people of these types have fundamentally different values and motivations from the INTP's, initially, it may seem impossible to relate. But because they are so different, their strengths are the INTP's weaknesses, and if they are able to develop a relationship, they can learn a tremendous amount from each other. INTPs are independent and clever partners. They enjoy engaging intellectually and want an intelligent partner who can match their ability to think critically. INTP s have little appetite for the mundane aspects of life, and may disregard the usual rituals of a relationship. They are rarely interested in tradition, preferring instead to design a lifestyle that makes sense for the parties involved—even if it looks highly unconventional to other people. They are tolerant of individual preferences but will rarely do something because they are told they "should. INTPs tend to analyze the theory behind everything, and may interpret human interactions with the detached logic of a psychological researcher. They may find others difficult to deal with when they cannot understand the logic behind their behavior. When things get too emotional, they may retreat to their own world of thoughts and ideas. INTPs want plenty of space in a relationship to explore their own thoughts, ideas, and interests. They value a partner that appreciates their ingenuity and problem-solving ability, and one that understands their need for autonomy. As parents, INTPs encourage competence and independent problem solving. They often do not tune in easily to their children's feelings, but will enthusiastically help them to reason out a complex dilemma. INTPs are usually involved in their own projects or ideas and typically do not take much pleasure in the mundane, day-to-day tasks of caring for children. As a result, the Architect parent may sometimes seem distant to their children, but their true delight in parenting is in sharing exciting ideas and concepts with young minds. INTPs can be insightful communicators, when the subject inspires them. Thoughtful and independent, they may not have a great need for conversation, but when discussing complex concepts or innovative ideas they can become quite intense and display a wealth of information and insight. They love to pick apart ideas but are not convinced by anything but the most rational of analyses; they can spot a flaw in logic a mile away, and rarely hesitate to point it out. I am an intp for sure. But I always has straights As in school. But other than that I fingd most of it relatable. I guessi is because I give up being lazy in studies when I was 6 grade. And I love mathematics physic and science. I think a lot, and I'm atheist, but I'm not an introvert. I'll have too checc out ENTP. What I mean is question why you're really answering the way you are.

In their decision making, they may also start to rely on their past experiences instead of relying on inspirations from the environment. Their underdeveloped Extraverted Feeling comes out in a childish and undeveloped way when they are under stress, and they may become emotional or experience uncontrollable anger. But in midlife, there is an unconscious shift and desire to develop that inferior function to achieve wholeness and continual growth. It is an uncomfortable but necessary transition.
